Reviewed September 23, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in September while visiting Napa and Sonoma. The rooms are basic - fine if you are on a budget. The location isn't great - it's far from the town square and you need to take a taxi if you don't wat to drink and drive (obviously!). Sonoma and Napa are quite expensive so I guess budget conscious travellers don't have too many options. Next time, however, I think I'll do more research.

Because of a last minute decision to overnight in Sonoma, the hotel was chosen more for the price and availability ,rather than convenience. We needed two rooms and all other hotels were full or overpriced for that week. We had plan to leave one of our cars in the parking lot to 'wine 'visit and was pleasantly surprised to be able to check into the rooms. That was nice as we could head to the wineries and later into Town Square for the Farmers Market and late dinner. A very important note to remember is that they do not have anyone manning the Office after 9pm - so would strongly suggest that you check your room. One of our rooms did not have soap or cups . Fortunately, we had the other room so we could have a 'glass' for water . The 'courtyard room' is small with Queen beds, decorated in the 60's style which was quaint, and it was clean and comfortable for one night. Having a refrigerator was a plus. However, the hotel is a far cry from what is shown on their website, and the 'garden' picture of outdoor chairs and a 'fountain' looks deceptively bigger than what it really is! Creekside Inn cafe is the closest neighborhood place if you require your morning cup of coffee, unless you just want the 'coffee' offered in the room. Overall, it was an all right place for one night stay. Perhaps if we had the option of getting the bigger patio rooms with King beds, the drive into Town Square might be an incentive to return.

Room Tip: Opt for patio room with king beds and check that everything is working in the room before the office...

We got a great price on this hotel on Hotels.com and were OK with the experience. It really is a motel--you park in front of your unit--all outside entries. The staff is friendly, it's an easy 10 minute drive from the center of Sonoma, and there are good restaurants in the area. The room (#3) was VERY small--I don't know about others. There was no closet or chest in the room, so we lived out of our suitcases for two days. We survived that, but any longer that would have been not so pleasant. It's very clean and there is a good breakfast place next door. I think their website is misleading, as they show the front of the one two story section of the place that has the patio people reference. There was a sitting area outside our unit, but it is just dirt--so it's very dusty. If money is important, this is a great place, but if you need creature-comforts, it may not be the right choice.

Room Tip: Perhaps those in the two story section may be bigger. I would definitely ask if the room has a clos...

We stayed at Sonoma Creek Inn a few years back and when we decided to come again, we didn't look anywhere other than SCI.
We enjoyed the small atmosphere of the Inn, a short drive to anywhere that we wanted to be.
We requested a patio like we had on our first trip and loved having the door open and sitting in the sun enjoying a glass of local wine.

The attached cafe is very good and great prices, worth checking out for breakfast before heading out for the day.

We spent our days visiting wineries and the coast and when we return to Sonoma, we will return back to Sonoma Creek Inn.

We very much enjoyed our trip to Sonoma and our stay at Sonoma Creek Inn . The staff were so helpful, with our booking a wine tour and giving us directions to the town centre. We enjoyed our accommodations everything was very clean and it was very nice to have the patio.

Room Tip: It was very convenient to have the ground floor

So clean and the rooms are absolutely lovely :)
Just a short drive from some lovely restaurants :)
No laundry on site but the helpful lady at the desk advised us where to go just a couple of minutes away :)

I was a little nervous after booking a stay at the Sonoma Creek Inn because the nightly rate is significantly less than other hotels in the area. With that being said, I was pleasantly surprised by the overall condition and cleanliness of the place when I arrived. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful as well. They made accommodations for my wife and me when we called to let them know that we would be arriving after the office closed and they also gave us advice and coupons for free tastings when we went out to check out some of the wineries. If I ever go back to Sonoma, I will definitely stay here again.
